looking to install pyCUDA on an Ubuntu box for some academics

Have a fairly basic Ubuntu 10.04 system without direct access

Fell foul of the "DistributeVsSetuptools" approach that's been
taken which isn't mentioned until you go looking for it.
Do now have the Python distribute package installed and have seen
most of pyCUDA compile but am seemingly being told it's
Processing dependencies for pycuda==0.94.2
Searching for decorator>=3.2.0

but is that likely to be a dependency that can be satisfied by a
package installable through the Ubuntu pacjage-management system.
Furthermore, are there going to be similar python dependencies
that are not explicitly listed as dependencies anywhere? A full
list would be most helpful
I've added a blurb about this to the PyCUDA install wiki page:
